Keady Vs Wolfe Tones Preview

Just over six weeks ago, this sides clashed in the league. If that games anything to go by, it could be a long evening for Keady.

Wolfe Tones breezed to a 3-12 to 0-11 victory, helping them earn promotion to Division 2A for next season.

The margin was only one moments into the second half, but the Lurgan side dominated after the interval.

Goal threat

Paudie Judge proved untouchable in the full forward line, claiming a hat-trick in the ten point win.

The Armagh City FC player will need shutting down and Jack Molloy could be the man handed the task.

No doubt Molloy will have some assistance in defence with the likes of Shea Harvey and Conor Corvan back there.

Midfield Battle

The midfield battle will be intriguing. Whoever gets a foothold around the centre will be confident of winning the game.

James Lavery and Jonathan McCarron form a strong centrefield pairing and they’ll be up against Keady’s Dylan McKenna and Conor Renaghan.

Up front, Paul Doyle’s men look to the Donnelly brothers Ryan and Ciaran for the majority of their scores.

Youngsters Ciaran Donnelly and James O’Hara were part of Ciaran McKeever’s minor side in 2020. They’re likely to get their first taste of championship at senior level this weekend.

The Michael Dwyers club reached the last four of the competition in 2020, defeating Middletown and Ballyhegan on the way.

The Tones on the other hand crashed out in an unexpected loss to Clonmore and will hope 2021 offers a longer run.

Listen back to our preview of tonight’s game!

Keady may have learned more in the defeat six weeks ago, but can they really turn around such a big margin in a short space of time?

Tyrone may offer some inspiration as they overturned Kerry following a hammering in the league a few weeks previous.

It’s a tough one to call but Wolfe Tones may just shade it and book their place in the last eight.
